Andrew Garfield Auditioned for Prince Caspian
Andrew Garfield recently said that he auditioned for the titular role in The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian. Garfield was 23 years old at the time.
That handsome brilliant actor Ben Barnes ended up getting the role. I think it was down to me and him. I remember I was obsessed, like “why not me, why not me?” … [My agent] eventually just broke under my incessant nagging and she was like, ‘It’s because they don’t think you’re handsome enough, Andrew.’ … Ben Barnes is a very handsome talented man, so in retrospect, I’m not unhappy with the decision and I think he did a beautiful job.Andrew Garfield
